Sky Costanera - the tallest building in Latin America
• Sky Costanera - the tallest building in Latin America,
Climb to the tallest building in the city and see all the giant ant hill from a height. Whenever there is a possibility at the time of travel, I did not miss.
If you arrive somewhere you like and see sticking out from a tall skyscraper - sure to find out whether there is an opportunity to be at the very top of it. As a rule, these skyscrapers do not even need to climb, they are often paid (or contractual) viewing platform, from where one can enjoy the panorama of the city, the sunset and the night lights stretching far beyond the horizon ...
In Santiago, the Chilean capital, too, there is a tower, proudly towering above the rest of the city - a skyscraper Sky Costanera, which is currently the tallest building in Latin America.
67 floors, 300 meters of concrete and glass cost $ 1 billion and the opportunity to review the entire 360 degrees of the giant city for just 8,000 pesos ... How can you miss such an opportunity?
Find a building Sky Costanera. You just need to lift his head and twirl around. In whatever area of Santiago you are, it can be seen everywhere. Next, take the metro or a bus and go to the skyscraper.
If the metro, then you need to go to Tobalaba station, from where the entrance to the tower some 10 minutes on foot.
Sky Costanera Tower was built as recently as 2012. its cost amounted to $ 1 billion, and it is not only the tallest building in Latin America, but also the most expensive. Interestingly, the high-rise passed during a wave of sufficient strong earthquakes (which generally occur every day in Chile). Witnesses said that the building is not rocked slightly when on the upper floor there is a Commission official in charge of acceptance of occupancy. As you can see, the tower stood, and then, dozens of other earthquakes, and more recently there is even a viewing platform opened to all comers at the top.
It is located on two floors - 61 th and 62 th. Above all metal construction and glass ceiling.
Frankly, this is one of the most impressive and beautiful roofs, on which I have visited.
And the cost of some 8,000 pesos (800 rubles)!
The beauty of the same!
The visitors did not so much as in the Seoul Tower, but it's a good thing. No one bothers to take pictures or just sit on pufe, enjoying views of Santiago.
A species is impressive!
And you know what impresses most of all? High-rise buildings. Please note here, almost all the area consist of high-rise residential buildings. Not so, as often happens - separate islands - sleeping areas, and some high-rise buildings to the horizon.
And from this perspective it is perfectly visible American embassy. It is located in the triangle between the high-rise towers on the right and three on the left.
The channel flowing through the whole of Santiago. Right Gray Hill of San Cristobal, and an observation deck on it, how often admire the sunsets.
The channel closer.
is one of the few islets skyscrapers among low-rise buildings.
Such houses in Santiago there are very few.
By the way, I noticed that in Santiago so many unusual and interesting buildings.
I think fans of architecture and design is required here.
Another feature of the Santiago - gardens and lawns on the roofs of houses. As a rule, it is not private apartments and public recreation areas, which can be used by all tenants.
Another such kryshscha a public green area.
